Default Andy Murray OBE! Disgraceful it should have been a knighthood!

http://www1.skysports.com/olympics/n...ar-Andy-Murray

So Wiggo gets a knighthood for winning a major and Olympic gold, Murray does the exact same thing, yet only gets an OBE? Are you fucking kidding me? REALLY QUEEN? REALLY?

Anyway congrats to Andy, it's the least he deserves after the year he's had!

the tour de france is the pinnacle of cycling, wiggo in all likelihood will never win it again

whereas in tennis, the 'pinnacle' is less certain, but from a brit prespective its definitely not the us open, wimbledon is more like it

Why would he want anything from the Queen anyway? He won the slam on court fair and square, while the Queen was merely born as one.

Good point but with Wiggo he had no pressure on him from the UK public, if he had not of won the Tour De France no one would of cared and no one would of slated him for it.... whereas had Murray lost his 5th slam final in a row every one would abuse him and give him lots of stick....

It doesn't matter.

It's not experts who give them out. It's politicians who have their faves and their own agendas.

Andy Murray's face doesn't fit as much as other UK champions this year. He's from an unglamorous area of Scotland from a working class background.

That's why his US Open and Olympic titles secured him just an OBE (the same award no-slam and no-gold Henman has)

what does OBE even mean?

The English screw Murray over every chance they get, not surprising. If he ever does win Wimbledon, hopefully it's after Scotland declares independence.

Wiggo winning the Tour was a first in a 99 years whilst Murray winning a slam was a first in 75 years. For Great Britain.

Because UK in cycling, before Wiggo, was non-existant. That cant be said about tennis.
